Creates a new shape whose path consists of an elliptical arc defined by the two points and the flag passed in as arguments.

Syntax

expression . DrawQuarterArc( xBegin , yBegin , xEnd , yEnd , SweepFlag )

expression A variable that represents a Shape object.

Parameters

NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
xBeginRequiredDoubleThe x-coordinate of the begin point of the arc.
yBeginRequiredDoubleThe y-coordinate of the begin point of the arc.
xEndRequiredDoubleThe x-coordinate of the endpoint of the arc.
yEndRequiredDoubleThe y-coordinate of the endpoint of the arc.
SweepFlagRequiredVisArcSweepFlagsThe type of arc, concave or convex.

Return Value

Shape

Remarks

The begin and endpoints define the bounding rectangle of the arc, and the SweepFlag_argument determines which of the two possible arcs within the bounding rectangle is drawn. The bounding rectangle is always aligned to the page coordinate system; that is, the _x -axis of the ellipse is parallel to the x -axis of the page.

The following possible values for the SweepFlag argument are declared in VisArcSweepFlags in the Visio type library.

ConstantValueDescription
visArcSweepFlagConcave0Concave arc
visArcSweepFlagConvex1Convex arc

If SweepFlag is visArcSweepFlagConcave , the line joining the center of the ellipse to the arc sweeps through decreasing angles; if it is visArcSweepFlagConvex , it sweeps through increasing angles.

Example

This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the DrawQuarterArc method to draw a concave arc on the drawing page.

Public Sub DrawQuarterArc_Example 

 Dim vsoShape As Visio.Shape 
 Set vsoShape = ActivePage.DrawQuarterArc(3, 3, 6, 8, visArcSweepFlagConcave) 

End Sub
